Sauna Use = Increased HGH = Better Cognitive Function As You Age

  Human growth hormone (HGH) is a biochemical that addresses the muscle loss and atrophy occurs with aging. The higher your levels of HGH, the healthier and stronger you will be. 

Once you hit the age of 30, you enter what's called "somatopause," at which point your levels of HGH begin to drop off. This decline of HGH is part of what drives your aging process, so maintaining your HGH levels gets important with age.

There are ways to naturally optimize your HGH. The use of high-intensity and intermittent to boost HGH in the past, but sauna use is another complementary strategy. 

Sauna use combined with exercise may lead to even greater, synergistic increases in HGH as well as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is beneficial for your brain  

Research has shown regular SAUNA use can increase the production of human Growth Hormone by 200-300%!  A recent article in ScienceDaily, link attached below, illustrates the importance of building and maintaining muscle strength as we age to help prevent cognitive decline.  Human Growth hormone is essential in the growth of new muscle tissue.

3 Basic facts on HOW Infrared Saunas benefit our bodies

Facebook Post 01.png
  • Increased Body Temperature WITHOUT A SUNBURN. Infrared utilizes a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that increases the temperature of the body, and creates hyperthermia without exposing the body to the negative portion of the spectrum which we know as the ultraviolet spectrum.  The result being an increased body temperature without a sunburn!  Our body’s natural reaction is to release this heat in the form of sweating; the sweat helps defuse the heat, lowering our body temperature.
  • SWEATING CLEANSES the BODY of BUILT UP TOXINS and WASTE. By stimulating the sweating mechanism our body can excrete a significant amount of urea, environmental toxins, and other waste products through our skin, just as efficiently as other elimination methods.  So, by exposing our body to a reasonable amount of heat for a reasonable amount of time, we stimulate the body to accelerate this natural cleansing mechanism.

  • ELIMINATES ABNORMAL CELLS.  Normal cells are able to withstand heat because of their normal anatomy compared to the abnormal anatomy of a cancer cell, especially in relation to its vascular supply.  A cancer cell doesn’t do well in a hyperthermic environment; By exposing the body to this heat, generated by an infrared sauna, you can selectively kill those less viable cells without damaging your normal healthy cells.  

Infrared benefits are bodies in so many ways. These are just three of the many positive affects of using it. SWEAT, EXCRETE TOXINS, and ELIMINATE ABNORMAL CELLS with us @sisusaunastudio.

"Infrared Saunas eliminate every type of toxic contamination you have in your body."

How to Use an Infrared Sauna

"A lot of times when you detoxify, you feel like you're having surgery conducted without anesthetic," Dr. Clement says. "I mean, I was a heavyset—forget heavyset, I was obese. When I began all of this, I was a fat guy, smoking three packs of cigarettes a day. And I can tell you, when I started to detoxify… I thought I was dying… And the odor that expelled from my body was so foul I had to open up the windows when I was in the bathroom."

Dr. Clement's general sauna recommendations are as follows:

Infrared sauna: 150-180 degrees Fahrenheit, for 15-30 minutes
Regular (Finnish, or moist) sauna: 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit, for 10-20 minutes

"What's interesting is you'll actually detoxify more, if you have a choice, with the infrared sauna," he says. "And infrared saunas, if you went out to buy one, are far less expensive than the normal saunas today.

Types of Toxins Expelled when Using Saunas

According to Dr. Clement, infrared saunas help release every type of toxic contamination you have in your body; most notable of which are mercury and lead. However, calcium is another. We're not talking about natural calcium here, but the types of calcium added to many processed foods that your body cannot process. Dr. Clement's book Supplements Exposed addresses the problem with many nutritional supplements and fortified foods.

"[Most supplements] are made out of petrochemicals, and coal tar, and turpentine—Vitamin E is an example," he says."What happens is that if you look at calcium, the two most common, 88 percent are made either out of oyster shells that are totally indigestible, or chalk, which is a known carcinogen! Now, this is insanity, and how we allow this is corrupt, but we won't get into that today.

… [A]ll that calcium that you consume… that your body cannot process, lodges inside of your muscles. A lot of these muscular diseases we have today, and painful diseases, like fibromyalgia [can be due to this.]"

Other contaminants being eliminated include drugs and environmental chemicals that you're exposed to.
